I've watched you grow
For all these years
And shamefully admit,
I've loved to watch you blossom
And it's awful hard to quit
Feeling these feelings
Stirring up inside of me.
You nearly are a woman now
And in a couple years,
All the rules and boundaries
Will slowly disappear,
Wait now, my child
Until you get a little older,
Every new sunrise brings
Your heart a little closer to me

Chorus:
But I can't make love to you
Because you're fourteen
Just a peck on the cheek
As I'm counting the weeks go by
(Why? why?)

We can't make love together
Because you're fourteen years old
And the trust of your mom
That we're not doing wrong,
I just can't betray today.
Just an ounce of patience
We can still do things we like
Watch you eat an ice cream cone
And watch you ride your bike
Patiently longing
For that future day of truth
I want to hug and kiss you
Nearly every time I see you
But I don't want the neighborhood
To get the wrong idea
There'll come a day
When love like ours is not a crime
Just give it time

Chorus x2:

But I can't make love to you
Because you're fourteen
Just a hug and a sigh
From a law biding guy tonight
(why? why?)
We can't make love together
Because you're fourteen years old
And the trust of your mom
That we're not doing wrong,
I just can't betray today.
